Ohio now has 1653 confirmed cases of COVID-19 coronavirus as of the latest from the Ohio Department of Health and Governor Mike DeWine on Sunday.
Summit County Public Health, meanwhile confirmes 100 cases of coronavirus as of Sunday afternoon, including 5 deaths.
There have been 29 deaths from the COVID-19 coronavirus statewide, with 403 patients hospitalized, and 139 in ICU.
Dr. Acton suggests that COVID-19 coronavirus cases will peak in late April or early May, adding that Ohio is on a trend much like New York City that has seen a severe increase in cases. Acton says we are on a seven to 14 day lag behind New York in our testing capacity, so we can expect a surge within a couple of weeks.
Last week, Dr. Acton suggested that we could see, at our peak, between 6,000 and 8,000 cases per day. On Saturday, she said that number could even be as high as 10,000 cases per day in the state.
